Women in mathematics and STEM

Worcester

Overview

This half day is designed to inspire girls to consider continuing studying mathematics beyond GCSE, and to have greater awareness of mathematics careers.

The event will open with a short talk, then pupils will move between workshops. The workshops will be careers-based with a focus on women working in STEM, and involve tackling context-based problem solving tasks in teams.

So ... if you have girls in year 10 that would benefit from knowing more about how maths permeates careers, or that might be wavering about choosing maths post-16, sign them up now!

Aims

  • Have an awareness of the breadth of careers that involve mathematics
